Nasal osteotomies

The authors performed a prospective cadaveric study (N=20). They evaluated different fracture patterns in order to define the necessity for performing paramedian or transversal osteotomies. To do so, the cadavers were divided into two groups. Ten had a paramedian osteotomy...

The initial management of nasal trauma

Nasal trauma and fractures are some of the most prevalent clinical problems in a facial surgery practice. Fractures of the nose are the most common facial fractures and reported to be the third most common fracture of the human skeleton....

Nasal reconstruction – short and sweet

This brief article by Stephen S Park presents his modified technique for nasal reconstruction, based on a single-stage forehead flap. The author presents this method as an alternative to a multiple staged interpolated forehead flap and discusses its advantages and...

Pliability and elasticity of the external nasal skin in unilateral nasal valve collapse

The authors performed this study to test the hypothesis that the nasal skin of patients with unilateral nasal valve collapse demonstrates reduced elasticity and increased pliability on the side of the collapse compared with the nasal skin on the side...

Nasal deformity following CPAP injury

Nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) is commonly used as a non-invasive alternative to endotracheal intubation and tracheotomy, to provide respiratory support to very low birth weight (VLBW) (<1500g) neonates. Nasal injury is a well recognised complication and figures quoted...

Facial asymmetry and nasal septal deviation

The authors’ aim was to evaluate the relationship between nasal septal deviation and facial asymmetry. They performed a study of 60 patients who had facial 3D CT scans from April 2011 to March 2014 and confirmed facial asymmetry, who were...

Conchal cartilage to reconstruct nasal septum

The authors discuss a common problem involving the loss or damage to the nasal septum. The most common causes are iatrogenic and previous surgery. The loss of the nasal septum is frequently also seen in repeated trauma and reconstruction using...

Psychosocial dysfunction during nasal reconstruction

Reconstructive surgery following skin cancer malignancy creates important levels of psychosocial distress, especially if it is located in an important aesthetic zone of the face like the nose. The authors present their findings of a prospective study group of patients...

A modification of the crescentic flap for nasal skin reconstruction

Non melanoma skin cancers are the most frequent malignant skin tumours and in over 25% of cases affect the nose. Following excision, the reconstruction can be challenging. The nasal complex has adjacent concave and convex surfaces, minimal laxity and nasal...

Form versus function concerning the external nasal valve

External nasal valve dysfunction is known to be a common cause of nasal obstruction. The authors present a prospective case series (n=19) including primary and revision cases of functional rhinoplasties. All patients reported nasal obstruction and were diagnosed with external...

A new method for free-flap total nasal reconstruction

Total nasal reconstruction is a challenge for facial plastic surgeons. Although most cases can be handled with local flaps, a bad state of the perinasal soft tissues, such as patients with head and neck radiotherapy may preclude its use with...

Total nasal tip reconstruction with autologous auricular cartilage

This paper shows an original and effective procedure for total nasal tip framework reconstruction using autologous auricular cartilage. The authors explain how the seagull-wings technique, described some years ago by one of them (Fernando Pedroza) to treat severe nasal tip...
